But I like the way we’re starting: three up, three down from Beckett. He steps off the plate; the TV (and maybe in Fenway, I don’t know) plays the Pixies’ “Here Comes Your Man.” Which has to be a first for MLB.
Then Padroia steps up, and whaddaya know? Home run. Then Youk gets a double, and Manny singles him in.
You know what, folks? We are downright spoiled.
I just hope they can play the game. The “drizzle” looks pretty heavy from here.
